‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Couple Taylor Nolan & Derek Peth Have Gotten Engaged

Get excited, Bachelor Nation! Us Weekly has confirmed that Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 stars Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth are engaged! 

“Derek and Taylor got engaged last night,” a source told Us Weekly. “No one knew Derek was going to propose. He gave her a Neil Lane ring.”

The couple got close during the first few days of BiP filming in Sayulita, Mexico, before production was suddenly shut down after allegations of misconduct on set emerged back in June. Fortunately for Taylor and Derek, they had already formed their close bond and were making plans to see each other soon after, as they both didn’t think that production would resume.

However, after an investigation concluded there was no misconduct on set, filming resumed and the couple was reunited on set. The two obviously remained one of the strongest pairs there, despite the bump in the road they experienced while discussing their relationship during Tuesday’s episode.

Derek reportedly popped the question during the BiP after show taped on Wednesday, Aug. 30, which must have been an incredible moment for Taylor and the audience to witness! Fingers crossed for seeing this proposal at some point this season. Dreams really do come true when you fall in love on Paradise.
